Hellboy’s Closing Scene & Christ’s Defeat of Death

March 24, 22

“I’ll cross over, and then you’ll be sorry” – basically a parallel to 1 Cor 2:8, Christ descending into Hades, the Harrowing of Hell, Christus Victor, ‘Jesus smacking Death & Hades around and taking their keys & lunch money’, etc 😉

WWUTT’s Gabriel Hughes Stumped on Get Life to Get Christ To Get Life

March 1, 22

When Leighton Flowers asks a simple question about the Calvinist Ordo Salutis of ‘Regeneration precedes faith’ you see how the Reformed position immediately ties itself into knots trying to reconcile its philosophical presuppositions! You can almost hear Gabriel Hughes’ brain-gears screeching & scraping on the grit of illogic:

“I mean it’s it’s difficult for us to say really that all of those things happen in a particular sequence, uh, it’s really quite mysterious to us when it comes down to it”

“Well it’s a good argument, uh, but the, the, uh, regenerating work that is done by God in a person’s heart is not the everlasting life, the everlasting life that we have in Christ is by faith”

“Yeah again it’s the the order of events is difficult for us to fathom or to understand”

“I mean it might be crude for me to say that you are given life before you have life uh that’s, that’s, uh, complex… It’s complicated, most certainly”
